Well, that's great if you have a laptop, you don't care about good performance, and you don't care about the binary-only intel_hal.so that includes things like macrovision.
If you need a PCI-express card, need to drive multiple screens, can't find one of those mini-DVI cards that plug into your embedded motherboard that of course doesn't come with DVI, or need a bit better performance, you're out of luck.
Even though intel graphics are an alternative, for which I'm really happy and that I really am going to support, it's not always (or even most cases) a viable option.
So punishing with my feet is still hard.
